Abstract

This chapter describes climate change and its effect on agriculture and human health in Africa. The three main categories of health effects are discussed: primary (e.g., heatwaves, flooding and disasters); secondary, especially vector-borne diseases (e.g., malaria, yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya), meningococcal meningitis and changes to other infectious diseases; and tertiary, including famine, food security, conflict and large-scale migration.
